Maurizio Salato Explains Why 48 is the New 12 in PSD Article

Power Systems Design (PSD) features an article by Maurizio Salato, director, power systems engineering at Vicor, which describes the transition from 12 V to 48 V power distribution in many data center applications. In the article, Maurizio describes the rapidly increasing demands on data centers as IP-based traffic grows rapidly, resulting in a need for greater server density. The traditional approach of using “silver box” supplies to generate 12 V rails becomes unsustainable as racks demand 20 kW (1.7 kA at 12 V), or more. Moving to 48 V power distribution, particularly when combined...
